Every age and gender chats or expresses themselves with their hands. This is true that your nails say something about you. I want to bring this up so that they say the best things about you. If you bite your nails you are with about 50% of people who do also. Think about the germs that are transfered from hand to mouth. Keeping a small file handy at all times to file away a rough edge or small tear often is all you need to do to prevent that bite that fixes the tear. The best habit to create healthy nails is to oil your cuticles every night. It keeps the skin fexible and the nails too. They will break less, and a dry cuticle that cracks is an entry for germs too. I know we have one more thing to do but as time passes you will be rewarded with a nicer looking hand.
If you have never had a manicure consider it, you will see the complete way to care for your nails. Hand lotion is a must especially for those working with paper, chemicals, etc. A light, quick to be absorbed lotion is good for daytime to be used as much as you need to. A thicker butter type lotion is good at night when it has the time to work deeper into the skin. Fashion is showing a shorter nail but well groomed. But as I said before, personal taste and what you want to show the world to express yourself, flaunt the lenght, color, or art you want is the best choice for your nails.
